With our “phew, what a scorcher” start to October over, it’s back to a more traditional feel to the Autumn weather. This autumnal morning sky had particularly atmospheric feel to it.

Waitrose, or as they call it, Premier House is getting a full makeover both inside & out. We always like to snap things looking their best and so we kinda like this rushed, poorly lit shot. Lovers of scaffolding must be very excited about the state of London Road at the moment.

Someone has taken it upon themselves to add some graffiti to Lionel Blair’s advert for retirement apartments at Twickenham Green. We assume it was created by a fan of the sort of unsubstantiated innuendo which regularly features on Radio 4 panel shows. We do not condone such defacements. It’s not big. It’s not clever. But it is quite funny. (And for the record, we should point out that Lionel is both married & straight.)

You can see a graffiti free Lionel here.

Well wishers turn out to support David Walliams as he swims past Twickenham on a not-so-bright but early Monday morning. It was the final day of his mammoth 140 mile Thames Swim and he raised over £1m for the Sport Relief charity. Impressive stuff on all fronts.

Can you spot him?

Could it be, could it possibly be, that Karahi Spices is really going to open? After the months of waiting, rumours and speculation we could be about to witness a small piece of history this Friday…

Karahi Spices, Opening Soon (still)

Summertime and the livin’ is easy, fish are jumpin’ and the buildings are highhhhhh. Yes, we have a lovely summer shot of the Travelodge at Regal House to brighten your day.
